Mugicha (Barley) One-Pot Teabags
For this premium barley tea, Ippodo selects six-row barley, which is densely packed with grains, and roasts it nice and slow. This barley tea boasts a fine aroma, refreshes as it glides down the throat, and has a pleasant aftertaste of refined sweetness. It's ideal for everyday rehydration.
In order to bring out the fine properties of barley tea, we fill the teabags with coarsely cracked barley grains. Great for everyday tea at home, and also makes a nice gift.
The key to achieving a light, refreshing taste is to avoid brewing the teabag on the stovetop while boiling the water. The tea will become too strong if left to steep in hot water for too long.

How to make cold barley tea

Very tasty and convenient for summer!
Very mild toasted grain flavors come through this skillfully crafted barley tea that can withstand a long steeping in hot water. It's best to adjust the water to teabag ratio based on your personal tastes rather than rely on the standard instructions of one bag per liter of water. This is a versatile tea, you can serve it ice-cold in the torrid summer weather or steaming hot during the cold winter months.
This tea is delicious cold. In fact I am going to have some right now. In fact I might be imagining but I feel happy after drinking!
Mugicha is wonderful replacement for people who cannot drink coffee or tea. Mugicha is wonderful hot or over ice. I recommend either way.
